of a greek column today for president obama. chris christie's the only republican -- not just praising obama, i mean, it's -- it's -- let's put it this way, is it wrong for one man to love another man? but that man love out there, it's isolated in the state of new jersey. well, tell you what i've observed casually with my busy broadcast eyes. and my cochlear implant aided ears. >> some republicans aren't happy about the budding bromance between governor chris christie and president obama. yesterday thee adversaries tourd the different station left behind by hurricane sandy, erasing for the moment any hint of partisan ranker. >> at the top of my list, i have to say that governor christie, throughout his process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> when i got on marine one, i'm pinching myself, believe me. sandy and christ christie's son believe it. >> who needs friends? it's true, richard. i mean, goodness. >> what's true? >> the -- >> heavens. >> i don't know that chris christie is acting the role of a greek co
obama spent part of the day today in coastal new jersey, along with new jersey's republican governor, chris christie. >> he has worked incredibly closely with me, since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation, since the weekend, and it's been a great working relationship, to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do. and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> you know, you would expect in a disaster this big that a president would be standing alongside and directing storm response with the governor from the state most affected by the disaster. i mean, generically speaking, this sort of appearance is not a remarkable concept. this thing becomes remarkable, though, to see president obama and chris christie standing together and praising one another and talking about the ways they are working together, and seeing their coordinated state and federal disasters, this sort of thing becomes remarkable today, only because president obama is a democrat, and chris c
romney, president obama both appearing with prominent republicans today . the "a-team" takes that up. what is the deal? the democrats need a little boost? stay with us. ♪ i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expt on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who mattermost to you says the most about you. massmutual is owned by our policyholders so they matter most to us. massmutual. we'll help you get there. ♪ lou: well, joining me now, the "a-team", democratic strategist robert zimmerman, a veteran political consultant and adviser to former president clinton among others in that capacity. wall street journal opinion page editor. well, you know, as we look at these polls, absolutely not a doubt, it is, as they have said it would be for since the outset , of very tight election. >> a very close race. recede now coming down to the states in this election. ultimately we have talked
, who's a republican, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i did today, in fact, i was just on the phone before i came in here, was talk to fema about trying to get an office and a staff person in various parts of the district that i viewed today, and they're working on it. i also asked, with the money that comes to towns for recovery, like to rebuild their boardwalks or their municipal buildings if they've lost it or their streets, i think there's a 25% state and local match. so we've asked and i believe the governor asked today that that be waived. a lot of these towns are very small and they can't afford that 25% match. so there's a lot of cooperation going on. >> and when you're making those calls, somebody's answering your calls and you're getting responses? >> i literally called fema, when i walked into your -- into the nbc building here today, and within ten minutes, they called me back. >> congressman frank pallone, represents new je
went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots accept as a backup in case of emergency. we don't have a lever machines anymore, that i grew up with. i am a native virginian. we thought the lever machines were pretty neat, but they are long gone. now you have computerized machines almost everywhere in one form or another. host: some of the demographics of the state, 64.5% white. 19.8% black. hispanic population, 8.2%. the lead story in the wall street about t
in the midwest, that's a dubious question. it helps president obama refute the notion that republicans are making that he can't work across the aisle. >> and all three of us think of it going the other way, what would it have meant? >> that's right. it was the same with the colin powell endorsement. >> let's look at that. excuse me. the president's campaign today released an ad touting colin powell's endorsement. we'll be right back to chuck after his -- let's take a look at what he's talking about. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times, close to a depression, and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financial community, housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. and so i think we ought to keep on the track we are on. >> well, he hasn't got mother teresa yet. she's lost to us, but he's gotten the most trusted man in america, his name is bill clinton,
york city took new steps toward getting back to normal. and president obama and republican challenger mitt romney returned to full-scale campaigning, with the election just five days off. we have follow-up online to our story on the street drugs known as bath salts. kwame holman has the details >> holman: state officials in maine are linking the abuse of bath salts to increased rates of child neglect. we look at that and the latest scientific research on the drug. spencer michels examines propositions and congressional races on the ballot in california. and older americans are working longer and returning to the workforce after retiring. you can help paul solman look into that demographic shift. if you're an older worker, fill out a questionnare on the rundown. all that and more is on our website newshour.pbs.org. jeff? >> brown: and again, to our honor roll of american service personnel killed in the afghanistan conflict. we add them as their deaths are made official and photographs become available. here, in silence, are eight more. >> brown: and that's the "newshour" for tonight.
was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. so they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. so you might say that it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data and that's why they're arguing these cases that they are. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? i mean, are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> well, one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollster, neil newhouse, was saying that he doesn't buy some of these national polls because he was just pointing out that the quinnipiac/"new york times" poll and said that was weighted more heavily toward registered voters than likely voters and thought that it sort of overshowed a little bit of enthusiasm for democrats, and i keep hearing t
is the only republican -- i mean not just praising obama. i mean it's -- it's -- let's just put it this way. is it wrong for one man to love another man? but that man love out there it's isolated to the state of meteorologist. well, just tell you what i have observed casually with my busy broadcast eyes and my coke lar implant-aided ears. >> he reminds mi more of the guy from deliverance skel like a pig. without getting too much of the movie references, it just seems like he's squealing like a pig essentially here. he knows he lost the day and he just wants to complain about it, this bromance, suggestions of gay behaviors. it's absurd and high school. >> rush is the kind of air raid siren for the republicans. when he's creaming like that, you know something has happened. if you add up all the factors, the fact the president gets to be president. if you add up the fact he gets to talk about bipartisanship and communal activity -- >> government being good. >> government being government, government being good, not to mention the fact that it also -- a lot of sats have had to rearrange e vents
. >> obama was joined by new jersey governor chris christie, who is republican, but christie has praised the way the president has handled the crisis. they viewed storm damage by helicopter. obama will also be meeting with residents and emergency workers. >> cleanup work is in full swing on the east coast after sandy flooded cities, washed out bridges, and caused billions of dollars in damage. >> but new york city is making it clear it is back in business. mayor michael bloomberg rate in the opening bell at the new york stock exchange, which was closed for two days. >> the storm killed over 40 people on the east coast and caused unprecedented damage. >> life is slowly returning to normal in new york. on wall street, major stock their first two-day closure ine- over a century. emergency generators provided the power. most of lower manhattan is still in the dark. an unusual event in the city that never sleeps. >> you look uptown, and you see lights. you look downtown and it is completely black. i was driving with a partner of mine, and i said that i do not think we will ever see something
. of course, this is president obama's firewall. polls show him leading there. no republican has won the presidency without holding on to ohio. president obama knows that he really needs to win the state if he is to get those 270 electoral votes. so president obama really trying to make up for lost time, tamron, with some of these key swing state voters. as you know, he spent the past three days managing the federal response to sandy. that allowed him to look presidential, of course, but he had to cancel a number of campaign events including in wisconsin. so earlier today in wisconsin, he talked about that issue of romney painting himself as the candidate of change. he basically said that's not the case. he said, look, romney can't be trusted. he's not the candidate of change. is he a candidate who essentially espouses the same policies as george w. bush which president obama has argued is exactly what got the country into the financial mess that it was in during the recession. tamron. >> kristen, speaking of change, the president has modified his stump speech according to david axel
from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not make a choice between the two major party candidates. maybe they would show up and vote for a member of congress or the local sheriff, i don't know. but it is not as though all of those votes are taken from a major party candidate. that is simply not true. having said that, it is true some votes are taken from major party candidates. if you only have a choice of a democrat or republican, some would make a choice. libertarians in general take a few more votes from republicans than democrats. maybe more than a few votes. it depends on the state and the race and the circumstances. gary johnson, i think, will take more votes from mitt romney than barack obama but i do not think it will make a difference in any state unless
is supposed to be a lock for president obama. the last time a republican won was 1988. but they elected pat toomey to the senate in 2010, elected a republican governor, 12 of the last 20 seats in the house are republican and they feel they have a shot and want to expand the electoral map with 20 electoral votes. they think they can do well in affluent suburban, philadelphia and even take a shot in allegheny county which has not gone republican since 1972 >> can't be good news for the obama campaign? >> no, it is not good news for the obama campaign. they are defending seats. all these battleground states that we are talking about, you know, he won pennsylvania by 681,000 votes, 10% points. he should be trying, the president, expanding rather than defending but all they care about is winning at least by one vote to get all the electoral votes in that state. >> in 2000, i was in florida in west palm beach watching as they counted hanging chads. won't be quite as bad this time in ohio but ohio is a mess. >> ohio, i just don't see how you and i are going to be able and the rest of fox 5 to talk
a comment you didn't build that, and the republicans lost their mind. let's remind you. >> obama: somebody helped to create this unbelievable system that we have to help you thrive. somebody invested in roads and bridges. if you have a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> cenk: well, after sandy, when you talk about the jersey shore or a lot of other places, you can fairly say you didn't rebuild that. the federal government will re rebuild that. will the republicans say hey i don't want the money? dowill he say i don't want the federal help? hell no. do you remember when he ran this against obama. >> if you have a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> my father's hands didn't build this company. my hands didn't build this company? through hard work we built this business. why are you demonizing us. we need someone who believes in america. >> cenk: you see, that was the whole point. no one was demonizing anybody. president obama was saying we work together to build things, and sometimes to rebuild things. and that is in fact exact
a long time ago. the obama camp says that's only because republicans are spending money in those states as a hail mary thinking they can wrest away those battle ground *. david axlerod said he will shave off his mustache if romney wins the battle ground states. we know jay carney and the rest of the white house staff are doing this for superstition. will david axlerod shave after the election? megyn: men are weird. >> reporter: don't get me started. the thing about the bomber jacket. barack obama commander-in-chief. governor christie wears that fleece that says chris christie, governor. do they need that? >> reporter: is there anybody that don't know chris christie is the governor? megyn: or obama is the president? >> reporter: you should get one that says anchor. megyn: they will say who cares. when the president speaks later today we are told he will use a moderate positive message in these final five days. taking a kinder, jernlter approach you might say. but with such a short amount of time is this too little too late for a campaign that's been criticized for its harsh attacks on go
the republican that has wiped out almost all of obama's margin of victory in the early voting or the number of absentee ballots cast for requested. he says, look the democrats 531,000 votes have already been cast or absentee ballots requested or cast. he says that is down 181,000 from four years ago. republicans, 448,000. they are not doing as well as the democrats, but they are doing better than four years ago. the democrats are doing worse enough in ohio and the republicans are doing better enough in ohio that the republicans have wiped out the margin of victory president obama had there four years ago. your thoughts on that? >> my thought on that is it's going to be a late night on tuesday. ohio is going down to the wire just like the rest of the country. on the decision desk we will have our green eye shades on prepared to tell you the latest. the latest will probably be pretty late. megyn: before i let you go any chance all this stuff we're hearing about power outages, them having to move certain election places, you know, two-thirds, some really high number of voting places now have e
points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly, when you poll, you take a political affiliation of people you call. as mr. rove just told us on his little board, his little white board he takes everywhere they poll more democrats in each of the three swing states than republicans. all right? but the folks don't know that because the "new york times" doesn't put that in the headline. so, my question to you is, do
obama. do you have any president with what your republican colleague in new jersey did yesterday? >> no. president obama is doing what he had to do. governor christie's doing what he feels he has to do. but i lived and breathes politicked. to show you how i've become obsessed with the tragedy in my district i got a colleague from msnbc asking what governor christie said about president obama. christie attacked him based on past performance. i'm living in a bubble right now. i had no idea. if i had to look at it overall and stark politics it's a short-term benefit to the president. by election day, people will make whatever decision they're going to make, obviously hime hoping for governor romney. president obama's doing what he has to do. it's important for the country. >> thank you so much. thanks for what you're doing for all of your folks and good luck to you. >> thank you. >> in the district. airports are shut down by hurricane sandy but beginning to resume operations slowly. this morning, laguardia airport, completely flooded during the storm, reopened limited service office jfk an
. republicans have shaved seven points off of barack obama's standing nationally. if you apply that seven points to florida, this would be an easy republican win right now because he won in 2008 by fewer than three points. it was 2.8 points. take 7 off that, this is a big romney win. that's not what we're seeing right now. we're seeing a state where romney has a very, very slim lead. what's going on? i think there are two interesting things to focus on. one is the panhandle part of the state. this is where there are a lot of lower-income, noneducated white voters. refer back to the 2008 election, i think we have a graphic that shows it, obama did much better in '08 than kerry in '04. the blue indicates these are areas where obama improved on kerry's performance. of course he improved everywhere except there's this swath from oklahoma up through west virginia, plus deep south areas. if you can see there, the panhandle of florida is one of them. there was a marked drop-off for barack obama from john kerry in the panhandle of florida. what this tells us is that the voters, a certain type of voter t
in ohio compared to 2008. 30,000 more republicans have voted. if obama had that lead with mccain and long at 2008, but only led by three points with likely voters romney leads the likely voters by five points. he won bison overall. if you look at the same panorama, it's all over. >> bob: in reality, you talk about the final vote in 2008 versus a week left to go to vote. people who vote early. you have to separate absenteeism from early voting. two separate things. people who vote early are senior citizens and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on election day when they did the count and doing seven things out. >> andrea: same exact date. 'canes is a political roundup, can we get to eric? >> eric: obama campaign, my opinion is in shambles. look what david axelrod had to do this morning. >> i will come on morning jo and shave off my mustache for 440 year if we lose any of the three states. with we lo
